Subject Matter 4 stars Boat Facilities 4 stars
Overall rating for UWP's 4 stars Shore Facilities 4 stars
UW Photo Comments Large rinse buckets on boats, but the water sloshes around too much to put any large camera rigs inside. I elected to put my camera system on the camera table on the boat after a quick rinse. Since there were a lot of P&S cameras in the rinse bucket, I did not want my large dome port scratched by these cameras floating about.

Comments Food is very good at AKR, especially the desserts. They have a dedicated pastry chef who used to work for a cruise line. Dive operation is very well run and efficient. Dive boats are roomy Pro-42s or Pro 48s and can accommodate groups easily. Large ladders make for easy access back to boat. Some of the key rooms need some updating, but nothing that would prevent me from staying with them again.
